What didn't happen in the Tenenbaum and Thomas-Rasset trials

To my mind, both of the "trials" which took place recently, in Capitol Records v. Thomas-Rasset and SONY BMG Music Entertainment v. Tenenbaum were travesties.

For review purposes I cite my blog posts on the subject of what wasn't done that ought to have been done.

"Have any of the actual issues been dealt with in SONY v. Tenenbaum?"

"How Thomas-Rasset case would have played out, had we not been in the Parallel Universe"

Ray, have you seen Nesson's reply to your list? http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/nesson/2009/08/25/howard-and-paul-geller-respond/

all respect to ray, these defenses do not join the fundamental issues. this trial was not an exercise in getting joel off the hook.

Huh??? Joel's lawyer was not going to get him off the hook?
